Partnerships

Partners

The benefits to becoming a Central Hume PCP partner include:
  • A voice at the table when we are planning for our community needs.
  • Ability to influence collectively (not a lone voice).
  • Being able to influence change at the systems level through opportunities to collaborate
  • Access to information on sector changes.
  • Working with like-minded organisations to attract funding to meet identified community needs (partnerships are looked at more favourably by the funding bodies than sole organisation’s applying for funds).
  • Capacity to attract training opportunities to Central Hume by pooling resources.
  • Opportunities to participate in initiatives driven by other Central Hume PCP partners.
  • Access to resources e.g. building an evidence base, via the Central Hume PCP office team.
